I would love to give the Escape a more positive review as the service was outstanding. For a new ship, the design is simply horrid. You can not walk through the main atrium area on 3 floors without being subjected to the awful smell of ... Read more

Ship is too big. Disembarking for Bermuda was awful. Had to wait 45 minutes for a cab to Horsehoe Bay. While I dislike the cheesy shows that I was forced to attend by my party, the Second City Improv and Howling Moon Dueling Pianos were ... Read more
